#185409 - Outdated embedded tool chain
Responding to: Andy Peters's previous message

It's worse than that.

They keep thinking that users want to do FPGA development and embedded micro development in a PCB layout tool!

I made a comment on their forum about "core competencies" and they just don't get it.

Don't get me started on their "vault" concept. Or their idea of implementing a back-end database for purchasing and ERP. It's absurd.

The actual schematic and layout tool are mostly great. The rest of the cruft is for the birds.


And that compiler does not support any of the newer chips like the Arm Cortex series. For that one must buy the Tasking tool chain. And they have no definite plans for updating it in the near future.
I wonder if the bells and whistles are only for justifying a higher price.
